Another surgery on the books for mid-April now. It will be an iterative process to address it all but the girls should be finished with reconstruction this year.
Thank you, Lord, for the brilliant and compassionate Dr.Crisera!

I'm studying Jonah and the author of the study, Priscilla Shirer, says this:
"God's good at taking our messes, our leftovers, and doing something good with them. Parts of all of our lives we'd just as soon forget, yet in the hands of a Master, our mess can become the greatest miracle of all. He has a way of chopping, dicing, and reconfiguring the parts that we thought were of no use. He's got a knack for pouring on His Spirit and sprinkling on a bit of grace and mercy. Then, voila! Fresh out of the oven of a trial or two, there's something delicious from your life that you never thought possible." - Priscilla Shirer, 'Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted'
So, as you sit in the belly of the fish (regardless of how you got there), trust in the Lord, the Master, call out to Him, and know that He has plans for you if you'll just get out of His way and let him work some magic.
May God bless you today!

Today marks the one-year anniversary of my first clean PET/CT scan after diagnosis. I've been a survivor since the day I was diagnosed in May '09 but I've been "cancer-free" since that first clean scan on Feb.1, 2010 which took place after chemo and before radiation.
Happy anniversary, NED! You're stuck with me, buddy. OK!? :)
Praise God for getting me THIS FAR and for carrying me even further. I'm grateful beyond words.
I just got back from having a routine breast MRI (it's been one year since the implants were "installed") so I'm praying for an accurately clean test result to come in. I should hear something within 48 hours. Thank you, in advance, for similar prayers.
1 [a]From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the LORD his God. 2 He said:
“In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me. From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and you listened to my cry. 3 You hurled me into the depths, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers swept over me.
4 I said, ‘I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.’ 5 The engulfing waters threatened me,[b] the deep surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head. 6 To the roots of the mountains I sank down; the earth beneath barred me in forever. But you, LORD my God, brought my life up from the pit.
7 “When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, LORD, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple. 8 “Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them. 9 But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the LORD.’” 10 And the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
